Acupuncture is an effective treatment that has been passed down through ancient Chinese culture. The concept is based on the QI (body energy), which travels through the body along pathways called the meridians. Acupuncture involves using needles to release the blocked Qi within the body which causes the illness.
Acupuncture works for people of all ages and is effective for most patients after some stable routine treatments under suitable medical conditions.
